Boat days

By HowardA  
A few of the local children spent the morning playing on the fishing boats in the shallows. They were having such good fun it was impossible to not stay and watch for a while. Got brutal sunburn though!

Thanks for looking.

I like the basis of this shot -

My immediate reaction is that for its type it needs more 'air' -

Standing off a bit would help also with bringing the background into focus -

I'm not sure that, with a busy shot as this is nor just the foreground in focus, the limitations as I see them help ?

nice shot. try a bit of fill flash next time it will lift those eyes out.

Thanks guys. Interstingly this shot is with fill-in flash at -1 exposure! Probably should have set it at 0 or even +1.

I've lots of wider shots too so might have a look at uploading some of those in the next few of days.

Great shot I realy like it! Shame you didn't use film and low contrast lens - you wouldn`t need a fill flash at all!Grat job!
